A thousand miles journey . . .

I've never really considered fanfic before. You'd think, given how I obsess over TV shows, that this would have been a step taken years ago.

I think I'm ready now

I want to try a Sex and the City fanfic. I get so involved in the show, because I love the writing. I want to write that. Hell, ask people who watch with me, I break the episode down in the first couple of minutes, that's how in tune with the series I am. Wow that sounded dorky.

Anyone have any advice? Favorite fanfic site? Are there any special unwritten rules of fanfic I need to know? Come to me, Yoda.

Hey, knoph, if I get good at this, can Sex Trek:Voyeur be that far off?

I leave you all with a SATC quote
"You didn't want to have sex last night!"
"We were at the Opera"
"I was bored!"

P.S. I love my Air Conditioned office. I'm freezing, instead of sweating.

Well, if you're gonna write any slash, make sure to label as such ;)

FanFic Success
Dear Wart:

I'm sure you'll succeed if you actually work and apply yourself (hehe right... right that's what they all say...) BUT no, seriously dude, you're excellent at picking apart movies and we all love you for it (Cynthia would agree, I'm sure!)

As far as Sex Trek: Voyeur goes... just remember Mr. Hadley that i'm not as easily to get rid of as Jeri Ryan... =-) so with that in mind lol i expect my name in the credits some where! lol...

As far as names for the cast goes, I have a revised list of names... as far as I can recall them... SO if you need any creative in put, I just thinking of how much fun it would be for me too lol as the Jeri Ryan (intellectual, but little real power in the scheme of things...) Should I begin drafting my version of Mosaic??? let me know... I'm dying to tell the story of the young
Capt. Bothways....

hehe =)

Re: FanFic Success
It's funny that you should mention Mosaic, as I felt the need to compare you to Jeri Taylor, instead of Jeri Ryan. Like her, I'll throw you a consultant credit to keep you at bay!

Background stuff could be good, as I'm thinking more of episodes. Like . . .

Best of Both Worlds (working title): Voyeur has an encounter with the Orge, a group of people bent on turning every species they meet into sexual slaves. They do this through the process of Ass-Stimulation. When it's done, an Orge drone wants nothing more than to fulfill other's sexual desires before their own. Bothways, at first very welcoming of the Orge, ends up resisting them (Our biological and technological kinkiness will not be added to your own!), on the grounds that it is immoral to think of only the needs of others without considering your own sexual desires. In the fight, Six of Nine ends of joining the crew. We, of course, keep Press, because we need her for . . .

Fellotium: Press enters a phase in her life span where she has to consume her body weight in cum every day. The male crew members are happy to oblige, and actual consider a return trip to Ocuntpa to "explore this phenomenon first hand". Bothways wonders if Press will eventually go through a Cunnilogium, and, if she does, Bothways will make sure they are alone together on an away mission.

Well, I don't want to give away the whole first season.

Trying to remember what else was in your email. No, I didn't get the book, I forgot, sorry.

Spoo, may I?
Dear Clueless in K-Zoo,

"Fanfic" is short for Fan Fiction: Fan-writen short stories based on characters and places already created in books, movies, songs, etc. Some fanfics fill in the implied information between scenes and chapters but most are continuations and sequals.

Will Voldemort use Harry's crush on Cho to his advantage?
Are Pip and Merry really gay lovers? (*slash)
What happens to Will after he drives off into the sunset -- does he find more apples?
See that guy labeled "Man 3 in Restaurant"? He's actually a IRS agent there to investigate Mulder's tax return ten years ago...


On and on. I like http://www.fanfiction.net the best. Look up your favorite books, movies, bands, etc. and see what people have added to the worlds. Some are written very well and creatively explore alternatives and extenuations... though most are just crap-on-sticks. (Ergo my fear of writing any myself)

* Slash is a special kind of fanfic that creates sexual relationships between characters. Originally it was any combination marked X/Y (pronounced X "slash" Y) but modern usage tends to be homosexual only. Hence the warning, since some of us don't want to know about that night when Draco convinced Hagrid to help make him a "man". *shudder* Do any other adults actually read Harry Potter?

I am a fanfic addict! Harry Potter Suicides and Lord of the Rings Hobbit Porn... *shiver*

I like http://www.fanfiction.net and I've been thinking about writing one myself. (One can never have enough versions of poor little Harry being abused and committing suicide... he he he)

You've inspired me to write a journal entry about fanfics. Splendid.
